A glimpse at Congo lives 50 years after the Belgian rule

The BBC carried a pictorial of Congolese from all walks of life. There are some comments that caught my eye. Look out for the 15 year-old market trader and see how longlasting effects of  imperialism can be, the Housewife’s story is similar to that of many jobless ugandan women, the Taxi driver’s story sounds like he’ s lives in  Kampala and then the 26 year-old Office Worker, her story is what I have heard from some Ugandans before. We can’t stop hoping though that one day Congo will find its other Patrice Lumumba.
